If you misssed the BBC Spotlight programme on NAMA
This is your chance to watch how Frank Cushnahan . . .
Wheeler dealer extraordinaire, a past pupil of St Malachy’s College Belfast, he’s a man with his fingers
in every conceivable pie in Northern Ireland.
He was awarded the CBE for services to NI’s economy in 2001.
He was well-known and well-in with every political party in Stormont.
Former jobs include:
*Director of the Office of the First Minister and Deputy First Minister.
*Chair of OFMDFM’s Audit and Corporate Governance Committee;
*Chair of the ministerial advisory panel to Stormont’s Performance and Efficiency Delivery Unit;
*Panel member of its Capital Realisation Taskforce.
*Chairman of Belfast Harbour Commissioners, WineFlair (NI) Ltd,
*Ex-director of the Northern Ireland Science Park Trust Foundation.
*Non-executive member of the Northern Ireland Housing Executive’s audit committee
*Chairman of the now defunct housing maintenance company Red Sky.
We spoke about Red Sky here
Comment: No surprise now as to why and how we got the runaround!!
And about how the DUP threatened to crash Stormont in order to bring down the curtains on the NAMA investigation.
There must have been a really, really urgent need to cover-up something big.
Comment: No surprise now as to why and how our former lovely SOS colluded in the farce!!
Cushnahan was also advisor to the Presbyterian Church panel handling the crisis of the Presbyterian Mutual Society (PMS) going bust.
including the disaster that hit Ireland’s banking system. As recommended by
DUP Sammy Wilson
Frank Cushnahan was appointed adviser to the NAMA, the Dublin government’s bad bank.
His association with a potential US buyer of Nama’s northern portfolio became the focus of parliamentary scrutiny.
Here’s what unfolded
NB. Mr Cushnahan denies any wrong-doing. He’s threatening to sue the BBC over allegations made in this programme
Comments: With his fingers in so many pies Frank Cushnahan had many opportunities to be involved in episodes of corruption. Maybe he was and maybe be wasn’t.
Queries: But isn’t it time to lift the lid and see what exactly was/is going on at Stormont?
Isn’t it time the Irish Government got the measure of Unionist and UK perfidy?
Or do they like letting the British lion laugh at them?
